AC Showcase 14U Orange Championship Recap: The City Wins Atlantic City Again

The City Repeats As AC Showcase Champs

Mike Williams and Eric Pachsall scored 10 points apiece as The City defeated Expressions 49-44 to win the 14U Orange Championship at the AC Showcase. Chris Baldwin scored 13 points for Expressions in the loss.

Top Performers

Mike Williams Guard (The City)- Williams showed up in AC sporting a new bulked up frame. This allowed the combo guard to get anywhere he wanted on the floor and absorb contact in the lane. His addition made this team look the best they have this season. Welcome back Mike.

Eric Pachall Forward (The City)- I like Eric’s confidence on the perimeter. His has good height on his jump shot and maneuvers well when handling the pill. He’s an experienced player and it showed this weekend.

Wolfgang Novogratz Guard (The City)- Wolfie didn’t score a lot but he showed good patience against the Expressions pressure defense. He’s one of the smartest players around and displays the passion that any high school coach will love.

Chris Baldwin Forward (Expressions)- You have to love Baldwin’s game. He’s 6’7 and can hit the jumper from deep and the foul line area. His touch is remarkable and he gets a clean look anytime he wants. Mark my words this kid will be a big-time prospect in the future.

Aaron McLean Forward (Expressions)- The gangly forward makes his presence felt on both ends of the floor. He rebounds like a machine and plays with a serious motor. Once he develops some perimeter skills watch out for him.
